I read with Robert Williams in South Shields last month and it turns out we go about writing a novel completely differently. He just sets off one day with the vaguest of ideas about where he’s heading, whereas I need the equivalent of sat nav, guidebook and walking boots. His book is about forests, set in the present day, and no-one has any sex-change surgery; mine is about the sea, partly set in the past, and sex-change surgery is an important theme. There will be hot caffeinated beverages before the reading and a book signing afterwards for those who have bought books at the event or beforehand. Do come. It should be fun.
